Abstract

excretes a large number of volatile products. The major components are dimethylallylic alcohol and mesityloxide, while the minor components detected include various nor-carotenoids and lipid degradation products. The formation of mesityloxide is strictly light-dependent, and ceases in the dark. A direct association with photosynthesis can be ruled out since 3-(3, 4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea (DCMU) does not affect the formation of mesityloxide during the first hour after application, but immediately inhibits the evolution of oxygen.
